In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Jan Gray from Louisville, KY.

Are you looking for intermittent fasting support in a cozy community that celebrates the clean fast? Join us on the Delay, Don’t Deny Social Network! Instead of relying on the big social network most of us have been on for years, we now have a community that is completely separate and just for us, with a variety of groups you can join for the support and community you need.  

You can connect directly with Gin in the Ask Gin group, and she’ll answer all of your questions personally. If you’re new to intermittent fasting or recommitting to the IF lifestyle, join the 28-Day FAST Start group, and both Gin and the other group members will walk virtually beside you each day of your FAST Start. After your fast start, join Gin and other community members for support in The 1st Year group. There are many more groups beyond these three, and you can join as many as you like. 

Members of the DDD Social Network have access to all episodes of Intermittent Fasting Stories streaming within the DDDSN platform, ad-free! That’s just one reason to join.

Visit to join our membership community. An annual membership is $59.95. If you aren’t ready to fully commit for a year, join for $9.99 a month and you can cancel at any time. If you know you’ll want to stay forever, we also have a lifetime membership option available.  

IF is free. You don’t need to join our community to fast. But if you’re looking for support from a community of like-minded IFers, we are here for you at  

Jan is a respiratory therapist.  In December of 2019, a close friend invited her to a meeting to learn more about IF and encouraged her to read Delay, Don't Deny. At this point in her life, Jan had reached her highest weight, and knew she had to do something.

Jan decided to ease her way into the IF lifestyle, gradually adding time to her daily fasts. IF felt immediately different than anything she had tried before, and she knew she'd never return to diets again. By the following July of 2020, Jan had lost 46 pounds, going from 215 to 169, and she feels so good!

Jan has experienced amazing health benefits: decreased inflammation, improved skin, and relief from her Fibromyalgia. Her chronic fatigue has disappeared, and she now has sustained energy. She remarks, "Where would I be if I had not found IF?" IF has also helped her to manage stress, and she feels accomplished living the IF lifestyle.  

Jan's advice to new IFers: "Just do it! Just try it! Fast clean, and see how long you can fast each day; it can only benefit you!"
